The relationship between lumbopelvic flexibility and sitting posture in adult women.

J Biomech 2019 Feb 9;84:204-210. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Faculty of Medicine, Memorial University of Newfoundland, St. John's, Canada. Electronic address:

Clinical observations have suggested that limited hamstring flexibility may be associated with sagittal spinal curvatures in spine flexed postures. Thus, limited hamstring flexibility may be related to large amounts of spine flexion in "slumped" sitting postures which could contribute to low back pain and injury. The aim of this study was to determine if hamstring and pelvic flexibility are associated with flexed sitting postures using a backless office chair. Read More

Changes in Lower Body Muscular Performance Following a Season of NCAA Division I Men's Lacrosse.

Sports (Basel) 2019 Jan 9;7(1). Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Department of Rehabilitation, Nutrition, and Sport, School of Allied Health, Latrobe University, Bundoora Victoria 3083, Australia.

The tactical and technical components of training become a primary emphasis, leaving less time for targeted development of physical qualities that underpin performance during the competition phase of a training program. A deemphasis on physical preparation during the in-season training phase may make athletes more susceptible to injury and decrease performance on the field. Two weeks prior to the start and one week following the conclusion of the 16-week collegiate lacrosse season, lower body force production was assessed in eight National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I Men's Lacrosse athletes.

Dancers exert tremendous stresses on the lower extremities rendering them prone to injuries that can curtail training and performance. The goal of this study was to evaluate clinical improvement in a population of elite dancers following treatment with ultrasound-guided platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections of various lower extremity sites by assessing when they were able to return to dance. Nineteen dancers (13 female, 6 male; ages 15 to 42) were treated between 2009 and 2016 at sites that included: hamstring tendon (1), proximal iliotibial band (1), patellar tendon (3), posterior tibial tendon (5), peroneus brevis tendon (3), plantar fascia (3), and the first metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint capsule (3).

5-Year Survival of Pediatric Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction With Living Donor Hamstring Tendon Grafts.

Am J Sports Med 2018 Nov 26:363546518804502. Epub 2018 Nov 26.

North Sydney Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Centre, Wollstonecraft, New South Wales, Australia.

Background:: It is well accepted that there is a higher incidence of repeat anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries in the pediatric population after ACL reconstruction (ACLR) with autograft tissue compared with adults. Hamstring autograft harvest may contribute to the risk for repeat ACL injuries in this high functional demand group. A novel method is the use of a living donor hamstring tendon (LDHT) graft from a parent; however, there is currently limited research on the outcomes of this technique, particularly beyond the short term.

Knee sensorimotor control following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction: A comparison between reconstruction techniques.

PLoS One 2018 15;13(11):e0205658. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

Clínica MEDS, Santiago, Chile.

The sensorimotor system helps to maintain functional joint stability during movement. After anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury and reconstruction, several sensorimotor deficits may arise, including altered proprioception and changes in neuromuscular control. It is still unknown whether the type of autograft used in the reconstruction may influence knee sensorimotor impairments. Read More

To Reverse Atrophy of Human Muscles in Complete SCI Lower Motor Neuron Denervation by Home-Based Functional Electrical Stimulation.

Adv Exp Med Biol 2018 ;1088:585-591

IRCCS Fondazione Ospedale San Camillo, Venezia-Lido, Italy.

After spinal cord injury (SCI), patients spend daily several hours in wheelchairs, sitting on their hamstring muscles. SCI causes muscle atrophy and wasting, which is especially severe after complete and permanent damage to lower motor neurons. A European Union (EU)-supported work demonstrates that electrical fields produced by large electrodes and purpose-developed electrical stimulators recover both quadriceps and hamstring muscles, producing a cushioning effect capable of benefitting SCI patients, even in the worst case of complete and long-term lower motor neuron denervation of leg muscles.

Nearly 90% participation in sports activity 12 years after non-surgical management for anterior cruciate ligament injury relates to physical outcome measures.

Knee Surg Sports Traumatol Arthrosc 2018 Nov 1. Epub 2018 Nov 1.

Private Practice, Nambour, Australia.

Purpose: Traditionally reconstructive surgery is recommended for patients planning to return to sport (RTS), especially to pivoting sports after anterior cruciate (ACL) rupture. Recent trends focus on delaying or avoiding surgery as some studies have found similar rates of RTS following both surgical and conservative management. This study aimed to establish long-term RTS levels in ACL-ruptured individuals treated conservatively, and to investigate the relationship between outcome measures and RTS, in particular, pivoting sports.
